We are an independent press in Seattle, Washington. We publish collaborations between poets and artists of all types. We also have an interest in publishing contemporary Argentinian poetry in translation and supporting writers with an interest in Argentinian culture and Jewish history in Latin America. Gay-owned and queerly run.
Thanks to the Primo Levi Center for featuring our new Amelia Rosselli translation of "Diario Ottuso/Obtuse Diary". These folks are doing important work to remind us all about the horrors of fascism. bit.ly/2QKXQCZpic.twitter.com/jUpToqlmly
